easter sunday

Hello loves!

How was your Easter weekend?
I hope you all spent some quality time with dear friends or your family, stuffed your faces with good food and chocolate bunnies, were able to relax and did lots of other nice things.
I visited my mum and stepdad on Sunday and stayed over night. They invited my stepbro and me for dinner and took us to a lovely restaurant. It's the same place that they will celebrate their wedding at next month, so we were all curious about the venue and cuisine.

I wore this pretty navyblue button down dress and added my favourite belt in the world and some cute and simple flats because I'm not a high heels girl. The dress is an Ebay bargain that I bought second hand about a year ago for something around 8€. I don't even know why, but it was not before last month that I started to actually wear it. Before, I would only try it on at home, find it too short or too tight or just not right for my mood and put it back into the closet. Fortunately I've left these failed first advances behind and came to the conclusion that it's the perfect simple dress for everyday. It's still a bit tight around the chest, but oh well, that's what happens when you've got a nice rack, right?

The restaurant we went to is called Auerhahn and it was really nice there. I liked the rustic and romantic country style interior, which makes the place look like a restored farm barn. The waitress was a bit clumsy, but the food and wine were very good. I had bacon-wrapped dates as a starter and pork filet in sherry sauce with garden vegetables and wild garlic spaetzle as main course, mmmhhh yummy!
You can see some pictures of the interior and food at the bottom of the post.

As Monday was a holiday we all slept in and had an extensive late breakfast. After I moved out years ago I started to learn to love these rare occasions when we are all able to sit down at the same table and have breakfast together. There is always an abundance of rolls, bread, cold cuts etc. and music and lots of things to talk about.

Okay, enough ramblings about family and food. Last but not least here are some pics of Sunday night:

Have a nice day!

owls, florals n healthy cookies

Hellooo and happy Easter!

I hope you guys are having a lovely Easter weekend with your friends and family.
I already visited my dad and his girlfriend from Thursday til Friday to celebrate her birthday. The next day we took a long walk through the woods and rewarded ourselves with coffee and cake.
Today I'll visit my mum and her boyfriend (husband to-be, I'm so excited for their wedding next month!).
So you see I'm pretty busy with the family, that's why I have to squeeze in this springy Easter outfit post here today.

The outfit is what I wore yesterday to run some errands. I also made the easiest healthy cookies in the whole wide world, you can find the recipe at the bottom of this post.
I am so in love with my new Gina Tricot skirt! The shape and print are perfect, especially for spring/summer. Add my favourite owl shirt and a light cardi et voilà: a cute casual look.

Oh and there is the P2 "Baker Street" lipstick again! Some of you might already know it from my last post. I just can't get enough of it at the moment! Such a perfect bright pink for sunny days! Instant cuteness!

And, as promised, here is the recipe for these yummy healthy cookies:

Mix 2 ripe bananas with 1 cup of quick oats. Add grated chocolate, coconut or nuts if you like.
Make flat small heaps on a baking tray with baking paper and bake them in the oven (150°C for 15 minutes).
That's it, supereasy! I found the recipe here.

Happy Sunday lovelies, until next post!

polkadots on baker street

Hello everyone,

how are you?
Well, Monday is not exactly the best day to ask this question huh?!
I'm tired and my abs hurt because of yesterday's workout. I believe this Youtube video has trained muscles in my body that I have never ever used before. Damn you, "60 minutes abs, legs and butt with Linda" (in German: Bauch, Beine, Po mit Linda, sehr effektiv)!

To brighten up this weather-wise crazy Monday (sun, rainstorm, sun, rainstorm...) I chose one of my favourite dresses, the navy/white polkadot number my mum gave me back in 2011 for my first business trip to Budapest. I added a denim shirt and the lovely aztec print wool blazer I got at the Esprit outlet after Christmas 2012 and I was ready to go. Funny how this outfit combines a piece from each of the last three years.

I admit the light fabric sneakers were not the best choice for a stormy rainy spring day, but they are supercomfy and go with lots of outfits, so I was stubborn and put them on. Luckily I spent most of today indoors.

Last but not least I would like to introduce you to my new lipstick: P2 Pure Color in "Baker Street". I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, this alone was enough to make me buy this shade. P2 is one of the cheapest brands on the German market, however I was positively surprised about the really nice creamy texture and richness in colour of this lipstick. Although it's not one of these superstay products it lasts pretty long too, survives snacks and cigarette breaks. And to be honest they have such a lovely colour palette that I bought "Oxford Street", a rich deep red, too. So, these lipsticks? Highly recommended! 

Have a nice day loves!

red jumper look with sammydress

Hi guys!

A little while ago I agreed on cooperating with an online shop called Sammydress.com - they offer everything a fashion blogger's heart could wish for. I gladly ordered this gorgeous deep red cable knit jumper (along with two necklaces, one of which you've already seen in my previous post).
And this is the outfit I put together with my new jumper:

First of all I'm a sucker for cozy chunky knit pieces anyway and then of course I really love the colour, such a perfect shade of red that really compliments my complexion and hair.
At the moment we have chilly spring weather here in Germany, so I've been combining the jumper with different skirts and dresses to look springy but still stay warm.
Thanks Sammydress for this great transition piece!

If you like the jumper or if you are just looking for some new wardrobe staples you should definitely check out the Sammydress website (there is a big sale going on with bargains galore).
The shipping to Germany took a bit longer, somewhere between 5 and 7 weeks, but the quality of the jumper is surprisingly good for being polyester, so it was worth waiting.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
